He has represented tech companies, retailers, professionals, entrepreneurs, homeowners, and companies of all sizes. His custom technology—the Chron—has brought him great success against some of the biggest firms in town. He is a David vs. Goliath warrior who, with relentless preparation, stands up to bullies and focuses on victory from day one.
As a commercial litigator, Daniel’s cases typically involve a contract dispute or business tort, such as an LLC member, corporate shareholder, or partner who has been deprived of stock or compensation, an oral business contract that was performed but the other side trumpets the lack of a written agreement, or the defense of such claims. He also focuses on business divorce or business ownership disputes, trade secrets, non-compete/non-solicitation covenants, and unfair competition. He has tried dozens of cases to courts and juries. He has particular expertise in electronic discovery, so that whatever the evidence, he can use it to the client’s advantage in the most efficient and effective way possible.
As a trial lawyer, Daniel is nimble, aggressive, and always ready. He knows that the key to victory is mastering the facts and evidence so that no matter what happens, he can put the key piece of evidence on a screen within seconds. Smooth and seamless. No fumbling. No delays. You would be hard pressed to find someone as thorough and prepared as Daniel.
Daniel went from a top six law school to nine years at blue-chip law firms in Los Angeles. As a BigLaw commercial litigation partner, he represented fortune 100 corporations in massive cases with hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions, of documents.
He resigned that lucrative partnership because he wanted more jury trials, so he moved to Arizona to try serious felony cases for several years. Now, as a small business owner himself, Daniel uses his skills to represent Arizona entrepreneurs and businesses in must-win lawsuits.
